Philosophical and religious texts from ancient Greece and Rome have been considered from a variety of perspectives. Among them, the cognitive approach has been steadily gaining ground. The results issuing from this study of language, emotions, and ritual as represented in those texts are promising (Larson, Understanding Greek Religion 2016. Mocciaro and Short eds. 2019). Furthermore, the creation of a cognitive classics platform shows both how fruitful the results of cognitive approaches to classical texts have been and the increasing interest in it (https://cognitiveclassics.blogs.sas.ac.uk/). As such, we are proposing a panel which will give further visibility to this line of scholarly inquiry while taking stock of and exploring new cognitively-inflected approaches to classical texts. This panel seeks to bring together scholars who are engaged in approaching ancient Greek and Roman philosophical and religious texts from a cognitive perspective.
Participants are invited to submit abstracts for 20-minute papers, presenting succinctly how their proposed research project engages with any aspect of such a cognitive approach.
